on the far right, the idea that mitch mcconnell would make a deal with obama could be acceptable. you have 10 or more republican senators who say they are willing to do business with president obama in terms of approving an increase in the marginal tax rates. if that is the case, if you could get them to pass some kind of bill and then send it on to the house, and all boehner said was i will allow a vote, and you have democrats and some republicans feeling pressure joining in, you could get a bill done. host: rick is from massachusetts on our independent line. caller: good morning. i have a problem with the president. he is the most divisive individual who has come to power in this country for a long time. he completely denied his white relatives and blames all the problems on white men by buying the votes of the lower earners in this country by saying it is not your fault. he promised to bring this country to gather. what happened? guest: i am surprised. upper income people voted for president obama. what is clear and true is if you look at white men, white men are overwhelmingly the single

to george w. bush, 79- 93% of the residential nominees were confirmed. under president obama's administration, a discipline not right for the senate to just block nominations and never vote on them. but that has become part of the routine obstructure. i do not think robert byrd would have put up with that. that is a change. -- should be changed. there is a story that illustrates so much of what david said about byrd being a complex figure. senator byrd was extremely complex. he is a very proud man. he was very sure and how he wanted to be treated. he had this relationship with carter. they worked together on a lot of things. that relationship was torn the night of the hostage rescue mission. senator byrd was in the white house that night at the oval office of carter. carter outlined the idea of the mission without telling byrd. that was such a betrayal, it was simply a horrible mistake by carter to have not told senator byrd, who had done so much for him. that tore the relationship. >> byrd worked so hard for carter and for carter not to tell him, you're absolutely right. he

of the negotiating with obama. the president is overwhelmingly dominate in the news media. you gave obama the ability to say to you not good enough. they can create 1-800 waste. probably technical a few more letters in there. i'll let you add the number to get to the right number to the phone company or put it online which is a better way and have it available on a variety of other formats and say you send everything you can think we should hold hearings on. how many americans could find one or two or three items of waste. we would have five million suggestions and you could say this is what he wants to raise taxes for. somebody said in the fema effort on new jersey is -- [inaudible] maybe a little bit high or low. give use a flavor. it was true in katrina. i want to give to an active radical program. suddenly you're in a different conversation. the president of the news media have gotten the republicans in to an argument over taxes. i give obama credit for this. i have never seen anybody better at finding trivial distractions in order to avoid responsibility. [laughter] [applause] let my say to give
's fairly unusual to have so many so quickly right after another election ends. remember dough dealt with some of this after 2008 when obama was going to the senate a lot to appoint people to his cabinet, dealing with a lot of fallout then as well. sometimes it happens, when president switching terms but it's very rare to have this much political activity so soon after november 2012. >> ifill: thank you both very much. tomorrow we'll talk with christina about shifting political landscape in illinois. south carolina again and new jersey. >> brown: next, the story of a catholic priest's journey as a doctor ministering through 25 years of haiti's recent history. fred de sam lazaro has the latest in our "agents for change" series. a version of this report aired on the pbs program, "religion and ethics newsweekly." >> brown: for 25 years, father rick, defined and redefined through crisis and even catastrophe. he came to this impoverished caribbean nation in 1987 after a few years in mexico and honduras to expand the mission of his catholic religious order. >> we came in fact to set up
, a billion citizens united is a disaster, and i talked to jim messina, who was so instrumental in the obama re-election organization. he feels as though -- i hope i am not speaking out of school to say this -- he feels we need a constitutional amendment to protect voters rights and to also protect our collections from the pollution of this amazing amount of money. i agree with bonnie. i do not know if it is an option, but the money is a distraction. it does not to give us good information about who these people are. now, noam chomsky says that the size of a piece of information is to make it as short as it is today is an effective way of censoring, is a censorship to shorten our pieces of information, because it gives us the opportunity to say something that people already know. but the amount of time that it takes to contradict a sort of known perceived consensus of reality and perceived wisdom to disassembled that in to build into someone's mind in an argument an alternative way of seeing things, it just takes much too long for the way we communicate today. i do not know what to do about
is in the senate hands right now. >> the scenario most likely is speaker boehner abandoned by the troops. no investment of confidence in him or his negotiating skillnous you look at president obama and the senate. republicans in the senate who are open to some kind of deal with president obama and the democrats in the senate. if you have ten-plus republicans, willing to sign on to some kind of deal, that puts pressure on the house. it might create an opening for speaker boehner. although it might endanger his re-election to the speakership on january 3. >> doug: the 21st of this month, the "wall street journal" did a great piece on the inside negotiation over the fiscal cliff. i said this. referring to president obama. ol' office meeting he told mr. boehner that if the sides didn't use the agreement he would use the inaugurate address and "state of the union" to sell country the republicans at fault. he said i put $800 billion in tax revenue on the table. what do i get for that? you get nothing. >> he knows the republicans are fractured and i think the debate who will lead is ridiculous.
